Nb

Resident and suspected occasional migrant, occurring sparingly and sometimes commonly on heaths and open woods in the west of the county, best known in Ashdown Forest in the east but here is in danger of extinction. Very local and distinctly irregular in numbers. Single brooded flying mainly from the second week of May to the third week of June. The larvae feed on sallow, dogwood and bilberry. (Pratt 2011)
